This is the second we've stayed at this hostal and once again found all staff to be very helpful. We like this hostal because it's centrally located with easy access to transport - Baquedano station - and sights and is very secure. It is located walking distance to the zoo and San Cristobal Hill and the restaurant area of Bella... More

We had a great stay at Rio Amazonas and for a very reasonable price. The staff are very friendly and keen to help with restaurant recommendations or things to do and see. The rooms are very comfortable and spacious. We were in a room with 4 single beds and a private bathroom. Breakfast was very good and a very personal... More

We would stay here again in a heartbeat. We had a private room and bathroom. It was clean, spacious and safe. The staff is extremely accommodating in helping to arrange taxis and other recommendations for activities. We loved the shared courtyard area - it was welcoming, colorful and unique. The location is perfect - easy access to Lastarria and public... More

I came here on my own, and for some reason was upgraded to the 'matrimonial suite'- no complaints here! Great room. Clean. Loud and creaky floors in hallways, but not a problem at night (I was probably out the latest out of anyone on my floor- sorry!) Perfect central location, beautiful building!

There is so much to like about this hostal. The staff are so friendly, helpful and welcoming that you feel instantly at home. The building itself is architecturally interesting and I loved the common parts and courtyard, where I ate a delicious breakfast every morning. As others have mentioned, the location is also very convenient and felt safe. I was... More

Arrived late sweaty and all sorts of traffic screaming at me for holding them up because there is nowhere to park. But - inside the staff checked my booking and sure enough - I had not ticked the box to reserve parking. As I have driven all around South America ticking this box but hey... So the staff said not...

Cozy and comfortable rooms. Well located (less than 5min walk from Baquedano tube station) but quiet. Very nice breakfast and wifi in all the hostel (including rooms). Nice common areas including a cafe and a small patio

The Hostal Río Amazonas is everything a traveller could wish for: A beautiful hostal with a quiet patio, really close to Plaza Italia and the Cerro San Cristobal right in the city centre.

Well, I pretty much said it in the intro. The location is conveniently close to downtown, the tube and the popular bar/restaurants of downtown Santiago and everywhere is easy walking distance. The staff are numerous and more than willing to accommodate in any way that is requested of them, with the best multi lingual staff I came across in Chile.... More

This is a warm, cosy hostal that offers you a sense of being in your own little apartment while you're there. The staff (mostly women) are all helpful and friendly. There is a charming sitting room and patio area. The wifi was great and so was the shower. What more do you need! It is pricey but everything in Santiago... More
